Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cel With Bebop & Rocksteady Hits Auction

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has captivated the minds of multiple generations now. What began as an indie comic created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird blew up into a phenomenon in the late eighties into the nineties. Many adults will look back on the wildly popular cartoon and best-selling line of toys with extreme nostalgia when thinking of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but the franchise goes beyond even that. The live-action films are every bit as addictive as the cartoon, so much so that a profane re-dub was pulling in hundreds of thousands of views on Worldstar and YouTube in recent years. The comic itself has gone through many iterations, with the current IDW run quite popular even with over 100 issues published. The original, classic cartoon fans can now celebrate this nostalgic favorite by bidding on unique production cels from the series featuring TMNT ally Casey Jones and iconic villains Bebop and Rocksteady.
